I need to get used to moving my wrist more when writing with my left hand. As of right now, I'm depending on my fingers to form the letters and it gets tiresome after the first paragraph.

On another note, I'm super excited for Hamilton to come out on Disney+ 👀. I was lucky enough to have watched a live performance, but the film is going to have the original cast with Lin-Manuel Miranda himself!!

i've been wanting to do daily illustrations, but always ended up giving up ~ day 30 :( trying to keep things simple to see how long i can go

not much visual difference, but the pen feels slightly more comfortable in my left hand (though i did get p tired in the 2nd paragraph). i'm trying to find the right angle to slant my paper so my writing isn't crooked :')

I felt more in control when I was writing, but got tired by the second paragraph. Also, I paid more attention to not squeezing my right hand into a fist as I write.

The pen felt more comfortable in my left hand, but I'm still shakey when I write any letter with a curve in it (especially S's). I also noticed that my right-hand balls up into a fist when I'm writing. I don't even notice it until it starts cramping. I guess I find this strange because the hand that I'm not using to write usually lies flat on the page.

At this point in quarantine, I was thinking about getting bangs, but didn't want to fully commit.

I wanted to add a little motion to my illustrations! This isn't my first time using AfterEffects, but it has been a long time since I've used it.

Back to Illustrator! I was more comfortable using the pen tool and pathfinder, and I couldn't find an equivalent on Figma.

I was tired of a laggy laptop after using Illustrator for a long time, so I switched over to Figma to make this.

I made this after watching Teen Beach Movie. I thought I would pay hommage to the music and beachy aspects of the movie. I also learned how to make colored patterns (the dots) in Illustrator (but this made my laptop quite laggy).

This is the female version of the Hot Chocolate Boy from the musical "The Guy Who Doesn't Like Musicals".

I remember that I didn't do an illustration for April 4 :( I was feeling really burnt out at this point.

More perspective art! Inspired by BTS' song "Zero O' Clock" and also the fact that my sleep schedule was at a disasterous state.

This was made when coffee dalgona was trending. I couldn't make it at home, so I thought I would take part by drawing it.

Another #DTIYS. I enjoyed making this one! My favorite part was creating the loose strands of hair.

This was a #DTIYS (draw this in your style). I had a lot of fun with this one, but I definitely need to improve on contrast.

On this day, I practiced using the pathfinder tool and clipping masks (mainly to make the lemons). In retrospect, I wish I went with a more vibrant color scheme for this image (it seems pretty dull). Also, I learned other tools (mainly the rotation tool) that would have made making the lemons a lot easier.

This was one of my favourite creations. I really liked the warm, muted color scheme. This was also the first time I used the gradient tool on Illustrator.

I remember this was probably one of the first times I played with perspective on Illustrator.

The pen felt very awkward in my left-hand today but I eventually got back into the flow of writing. The process felt a lot slower today, but I think I improved in terms of having more consistent spacing between my letters and words. My actual writing has a long way to go, though.
